Cabrera will enter a alcohol-treatment program administered by Major League Baseball and will have someone around him on a regular basis for counseling.

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Aaron Hill (quadriceps) was held out the intrasquad game Thursday, Feb. 24, due to tightness in his right quadriceps muscle, reports Gregor Chisholm, of MLB.com.

2B | Ian Kinsler | Texas Rangers | Fantasy
Texas Rangers 2B Ian Kinsler, who seems to be the favorite to hit leadoff this year, is welcoming the idea, according to ESPNDallas.com's Richard Durrett. "I enjoyed it and I'd love to do it for this team," Kinsler said. "It's very early, so we'll see. I'd love to hit in the first inning, but anywhere in this lineup there's going to be chances to drive guys in and to help guys behind me." SS Elvis Andrus would likely hit in the No. 2 spot behind Kinsler.

2B | Freddy Sanchez | San Francisco Giants | Injury, Fantasy

Atlanta Braves 2B Dan Uggla has transitioned nicely to his new team this spring, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien. "It's been awesome," Uggla said. "I expected a lot of it to be like this. There's not any real big egos in here to try and figure out or anything like that. What you see is what you get. Nobody's trying to treat me in any certain way; they just treat me like they treat anybody. So it's been a good experience so far."


Shortstop

SS | Cesar Izturis | Baltimore Orioles | Injury, Fantasy
Baltimore Orioles IFs Cesar Izturis and Brendan Harris are taking grounders at second base Friday, Feb. 25, in 2B Brian Roberts' (neck) absence, MASNSports.com's Roch Kubatko reports.

SS | Starlin Castro | Chicago Cubs | Fantasy
Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade said he does not feel SS Starlin Castro is the right fit as the team's leadoff hitter this year, according to the Chicago Sun-Times' Gordon Wittenmyer. "I would prefer not to (use Castro at leadoff)," said Quade, who plans to keep Castro at No. 2 in the order after a .300 rookie season that included a .347 on-base percentage. "Because he's young. Some of the demands of a really good leadoff hitter that I'd like to think down the road (he'll develop) pitch selection and some of the things that he still has a ways to go on would be huge."

SS | Jack Wilson | Seattle Mariners | Fantasy
Seattle Mariners SS Jack Wilson went on a better eating regimen during the offseason and hired a personal trainer to work on his legs, something that he has never done before, all in an effort to remain healthy this year, according to The Seattle Times' Geoff Baker. Wilson didn't focus on bulking up his upper body, just his legs. He also came to camp lighter, weighing 177 pounds as opposed to 195-200 last year. "It's just something I came up with on my own," Wilson said. "I figured out that my hamstrings weren't handling me at the size that I was. So, I decided that if I got smaller and made my legs stronger, it might change some things." He also feels his lighter frame will make him better defensively, with more range.

SS | Maicer Izturis | Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim |
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said IF Maicer Izturis will likely play three different positions in the infield this year, according to MLB.com. "But will he start more games at third than anybody else? No," Scioscia said. "Izzy will be a primary player at three different positions. We'll have an opportunity to give (second baseman) Howie (Kendrick) and (shortstop) Erick (Aybar) breathers when Alberto Callaspo is at third. So if Izzy plays 100 games, it might be 30-30-40. It's something we'll be looking at every day." Izturis is currently slated to lead off and start at third for the team's season opener.

SS | Angel Sanchez | Houston Astros | Injury
Houston Astros IF Angel Sanchez (oblique) took his first batting practice of the spring Thursday, Feb. 24, and says he's "ready to go," reports MLB.com's Brian McTaggart.


Third Baseman

3B | Adrian Beltre | Texas Rangers | Injury, Fantasy
Updating previous reports, Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre (calf) had an MRI reveal no tear in his calf, and he should have plenty of time to be ready for opening day, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Jeff Wilson reports. He'll miss 10 to 14 days with a Grade 1 strain of his right calf.

3B | David Freese | St. Louis Cardinals | Injury
St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said 3B David Freese (ankle) is feeling great, but the team won't push him early, MLB.com's Matthew Leach reports. He'll play in some of the early games, but not a lot of them. 3B Allen Craig, 2B Daniel Descalso and IF Ramon Vazquez will be candidates for starts at third base.

3B | Chipper Jones | Atlanta Braves | Injury, Fantasy
Updating previous reports, Atlanta Braves 3B Chipper Jones (knee) will do his first sliding drills Friday, Feb. 25, and may serve as the designated hitter in the spring game Sunday, Feb. 28, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien reports.

C | J.P. Arencibia | Toronto Blue Jays | Fantasy
Toronto Blue Jays C J.P. Arencibia's work ethic in spring training is catching the attention of teammates, and he spent time with a personal trainer in the offseason to gain weight to prepare for a full season in the big leagues, according to MLB.com's Gregor Chrisholm. "The first thing that impressed me was his work ethic," bench coach Don Wakamatsu said. "He understands where he is and where he needs to go. There are a lot of things we need to cover before we break (camp) but ... he's stayed extra time, he's worked extremely hard at everything he's doing." Arencibia is claiming to be in the best shape of his life. He has spent the early part of spring improving his footwork behind the plate and his ability to block balls in the dirt.

SP | Phil Coke | Detroit Tigers | Fantasy
Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said the team will begin the regular season with a four-man rotation, according to MLB.com's Jason Beck. The team is unlikely to need a fifth starter until April 10. SPs Phil Coke and Brad Penny are the candidates to fill in for that spot.

SP | Chris Young | New York Mets | Injury, Fantasy

"I've seen too many back-to-back bullpens or batting practices from them to think that there is any discomfort," Collins said. "Now, as we'll all see through spring training, there is going to be a time (when) that dead-arm period will set in. I'm not going to get too caught up in that, because they certainly are very, very sound." Young and Capuano are front-runners for the fourth and fifth spots in the rotation.

SP | Brandon Webb | Texas Rangers | Injury, Fantasy
Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington was impressed with what he saw from SP Brandon Webb (shoulder) during his long toss session Thursday, Feb. 24, according to ESPNDallas.com's Richard Durrett.

SP | James Shields | Tampa Bay Rays | Fantasy
Tampa Bay Rays SP James Shields feels that falling off the mound during his delivery and landing on the outside of his plant foot last year led to him keeping the ball up in the zone, according to MLB.com's Bill Chastain. As a result, Shields went with some different mechanics during offseason workouts to address this problem. "I implemented a little more of the biomechanics of my pitching and just really worked on the strength of my core and the stability of my legs," Shields said. "I think that's going to help out a lot." Manager Joe Maddon thinks Shields is a good bet to bounce back in 2011.

SP | Adam Wainwright | St. Louis Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy

RP | Kyle McClellan | St. Louis Cardinals | Fantasy
Updating a previous item, St. Louis Cardinals Ps Miguel Batista and Kyle McClellan will only be candidates to move to the rotation if the team can find a replacement for them in the bullpen, according to FOXSportsMidwest.com's B.J. Rains. "That's the argument for either Miguel or Kyle," manager Tony La Russa said. "Kyle, every year he's more important. You have to win games at the end like you do at the beginning. We never wanted to penalize Kyle. In the end, you look at what's best for your pitching staff, not just your rotation. Kyle is in a great position. He's a valuable member of the bullpen. But maybe he's the best starter." La Russa said that the final spot in the bullpen is Batista's to lose this spring. SP Raul Valdes could be an intriguing wild card for the final rotation spot.

RP | Jonathan Broxton | Los Angeles Dodgers | Fantasy
Los Angeles Dodgers 1B James Loney was impressed with the life on RP Jonathan Broxton's fastball during a live batting practice session Thursday, Feb. 24, according to the Los Angeles Times' Dylan Hernandez.
